The Russian Dota 2 team Winstrike has announced changes in their roster after a disappointing result in the qualifiers for The International 2019. The carry player Airat "Silent" Gaziev has been benched but will remain in the organization as a substitute player.
Silent was one of the founders of FlyToMoon, the roster which later was signed by Winstrike Team. He has been playing for the team since February 2018. Last season the team placed 3rd at EPICENTER XL and 9-12th at The International 2018, however this season the team failed to qualify for a single LAN-event, as well as placed 2nd in the closed CIS qualifier for TI9. According to the official statement, Silent will remain in the organization until the end of the year.
